The NYG&B's popular annual Albany research trip is Wednesday-Friday, October 26-28, 2016. Join the New York experts, the people who know New York research best, for three days of research concentrated in the vast resources of New York State Archives (NYSA) and the New York State Library (NYSL). You'll also enjoy the camaraderie of friendly people who share your interest in family history.

Please note that the NYSL and the NYSA have few resources for New York City specifically (most are held in New York City), but they do have important statewide sources that include city residents (military records, land grants/patents, etc.).
